Star-studded red carpet events = glamour overdose! And being the beauty ninjas that we are, our beauty lens is always ready to spot new trends, be it in the hair or makeup department. This time we spotted a monochrome makeup look in coral. From the cheeks to the eyes and lips, Bollywood beauty Kiara Advani made coral makeup look bomb!
The actress who’s always got her beauty game on fleek gave us major makeup goals at a recent red carpet do. Dressed in a gold, high-slit embellished gown, she sported a coral monochrome makeup, that looked drop-dead stunning. Here’s a step-by-step look decode.
Step 1: Once you’ve cleansed your face and moisturised well, it’s time to prep your skin for all the makeup that is to follow. Go ahead and use the Lakmé Absolute Blur Perfect Makeup Primer and apply it all over your face and neck.
Step 2: To create a dewy base just like Kiara’s, reach for a serum foundation such as the Lakmé Absolute Argan Oil Serum Foundation with SPF 45 that helps nourish the skin and give it a dewy, radiant look.
Step 3: Conceal problem areas such as dark spots, blemishes and pigmentation wherever needed, using the Lakmé Absolute White Intense Liquid Concealer.
Step 4: Next, add colour to your cheeks. To recreate the coral monochrome look, go for a blush with orange tones, instead of the usual pink blush. We suggest you get your hands on the Lakmé Kareena Kapoor Khan Absolute Cheek Contour - Coral Diva to add a pop of coral to your cheeks.
Step 5: Lastly, highlight the high points of your face such as cheekbones, bridge of the nose, chin and forehead. You can use the Lakmé Absolute Highlighter - Moon-Lit to give your face a reflective shimmer finish.
Step 6: Get your hands on the Lakmé Absolute Illuminating Eye Shadow Palette – French Rose and use the orange shadow from the palette to cover your lids completely. Go all the way from your inner corner to the outer corner, making sure you cover right up till your brow bone.
Step 7: Use the Lakmé Absolute Kohl Ultimate Kajal - Black and apply a single stroke on your waterline. Then take a brush and smudge it for added effect.
Step 8: Finish off with generous coats of mascara. You can use the Lakme Eyeconic Curling Mascara for perfectly curled lashes.
Step 9: Brush your brows with a spoolie, then fill them in with the Lakmé Absolute Precision Eye Artist Eyebrow Pencil - Dark Brown for defined yet natural-looking brows.
Step 10: To tie the coral monochrome makeup look together, use the Elle 18 Go Matte Lip Crayons - 04 Peach love that will give your lips a soft matte payoff.
